I’m very sure that most of us use Google Analytics to monitor and see the detailed statistic about the visitor to our websites and blogs. The statistics provided by Google Analytics are very detail. However, the Website Visitor Statistic data are updated only every 24 hours and not in real-time reap is the opposite of.
Introducing Woopra, a web analytics service that will show you the detailed statistics of your website visitor, in real time! Woopra offers live tracking and website statistics, rich user interface and of course, the real-time website analytics. Woopra is so much like a real-time tracking version of Google Analytics. The statistic are presented on their desktop client software, which is written in Java. The client is available for Windows, Linux and MacOS.
Woopra is still in a closed beta stage. During the beta testing phase, it is restricted to sites with less than 10,000 pageviews per day and will not gather information past that number if the site surpasses it. Woopra is free of charge during the Beta testing phase. Both free and paid plans will be available as soon as Woopra is officially released.
I’ve waited for about a month before my blog is being approved (in fact, it just a few hours ago). Here are some screenshots of Woopra client (click the image to enlarge):
Woopra is really an impressive tool to monitor and analyse your website traffic. The real-time statistics and rich client absolutely amazed me.
Google Chrome Offline Installer? – Website Visitor Statistic
Google Chrome installer will download the browser component during the install process, which prevent you from installing it on a PC without internet connection reap is the opposite of.
OK, this is not exactly Google Chrome offline installer. However, Chromium, the open source project behind Google Chrome actually have binary build of the browser, without the need for you to run Google Chrome installer to install it. The interface and functionality of Chromium is exactly the same as Google Chrome, except there is no update checker.
To download Chromium build snapshots, go here, and choose the latest build folder. Download the chrome-win32.zip file. All you need to do is extract the content of chrome-win32.zip to any directory and run chrome.exe.
While Google Chrome stores its configuration and cache in C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data, Chromium stores them in C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Application Data\Chromium\User Data.
Welcome Google Chrome! First Look – Website Visitor Statistic
Google Chrome is the latest open source web browser, built with WebKit and Mozilla technology, developed by Google. When I first run Google Chrome, I noticed the simple GUI of Google Chrome. You will get the basic GUI such as tabs, address bar, back, forward and home buttons. Even bookmarks is actually hidden by default (you have the option to show it somehow).
Some Google Chrome features:
- Phishing and malware sites blacklist will be periodically downloaded by Google Chrome.
- Each tabs in Google Chrome are sandboxed, meaning that each tab is isolated and cannot affect other tabs, and have the similar ‘Protected Mode’ used by Explorer 7 on Windows Vista.
- Google Chrome comes with its own task manager, so you can see which tab or plugin that hogs your system resources.
Importing bookmarks from Mozilla Firefox is pretty easy. There is a menu that enables you to import bookmark and settings from Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer. However, Google Chrome did not came with a decent bookmark manager. You can only do simple task to manage your bookmarks reap is the opposite of.
As for web browsing, Google Chrome is extremely fast, light and stable. Since the machine I used to test Google Chrome is not very fast, Google Chrome became unresponsive when I open all my 63 bookmarked ‘quick start’ page. Mozilla Firefox and Opera somehow can handle this. Maybe this is caused by the fact that each tab in Google Chrome are launched as separate processes. Other than that, Google Chrome works very fine. You will need a high end system to enjoy Google Chrome if you are a heavy surfer.
Some shortcuts are quite same with other browser. CTRL+T opens a new tab, CTRL+W closes the current tab, CTRL+Tab and CTRL+Shift+Tab navigates cycles to the right and left of the tabs list.
Google Chrome lacks of the option to customize how it works. Features such as gestures, ability to customize the keyboard and mouse shortcut for the browser would be very handy. Google Chrome is… just too simple. So far, it still a good browser when considering it is the first public version.
